Southern New England Cruise

"Hi-Neighbor! Have a 'Gansett!" (Bay, not Beer in our case!).

Welcome to the 2024 Southern Cruise!. Unlike Roger Williams, you don't have to be banished from Massachusetts to discover Narragansett Bay.

The 2024 Southern Cruise will include a leisurely circumnavigation of the Bay, with plenty of shoreside activities.

Upon leaving Narragansett Bay, we'll head to Buzzards Bay to enjoy a few ports before meeting the Maine Train.
